  3. 3. ○ The Average distance from sun is 778,500,000 km ○ Jupiter completes an orbit every 11.86 years ○ Average density of Jupiter is 1.326 g/cm3, the average density of earth is 5.52 g/cm3, It’s less than 25% of Earth’s ○ Its average temperature is -145 degrees Celsius.
  4. 4. ○ The diameter of Jupiter is 142,984 km, Jupiter is 11.2 times the size of the Earth and larger than any other body in our solar system other than the sun. ○ The gravity of Jupiter is 2.5 times what is here on Earth, Jupiter has only 254% of the earth’s gravity on earth. ○ If an object weigh 100 kg on Earth, it would weigh 236 kg in Jupiter.
  5. 5. ○ Jupiter is about 90% hydrogen and 10% helium, with traces of methane, water, ammonia, and rock. ○ Jupiter has the largest atmosphere in the Solar System. It is mostly made of molecular hydrogen and helium.

  7. 7. Missions Name Date of Launch End of Mission Status Juno Aug 5, 2011 July 2016 In Flight New Horizons Jan 19, 2006 2026 In Flight Cassini Oct 15, 1997 Jan 14, 2005 Mission in Progress Ulysses Oct 6, 1990 June 30, 2009 Successful Galileo Oct 18, 1989 Sep 21, 2003 Successful Voyager 1 Sep 6, 1977 Aug 16, 2006 100 Astronomical Units Reached Mission in Progress Voyager 2 Aug 20, 1977 Aug 24, 1989 Mission in Progress Pioneer 11 Apr 5, 1973 Nov 24, 1995 Successful
  8. 8. Jupiter’s Ring ○ It’s ring was discovered by Voyager 1 in a single image. The main ring is about 7,000 km wide and has an abrupt outer boundary 129,130 km from the center of planet, dust from 2 moons makes most of the ring. ○ In my opinion life in Jupiter is pretty difficult because there is no oxygen in Jupiter, not even 0.1%. In order to live in Jupiter we need to plant trees and vegetables so that oxygen produce and people live there. Also, there is shortage of water in Jupiter. Living there is very difficult
